Have you ever stopped to consider the origins or implications of certain sayings? Take ‘like a bull in a china shop’ for example. The bull could be there to check out the pottery and ceramic wares but, most likely, it’s in reference to the bull being reckless around fragile items.
Well developer Play’n GO has taken that phrase and turned it into an entire video slot game with multiple bulls, all making their way through this unfortunate store.
Let’s have a closer look and see how the developer has made this fun little title so unique, entertaining and at times quite chaotic.
Theme & Symbols
The theme is quite straightforward, you’re in a china shop and there’s a few bulls running amok through this little establishment.
The grid is essentially the store, placed right in the middle of a street that would otherwise be winding down at the end of the day. There are lanterns lighting up the later afternoon / early evening attached to the left and right side of the grid. As you might expect, there are pots lying around near the base of the grid and, in all, the town looks incredibly peaceful.
The music that plays alongside the game is very fitting, the score feels like it should belong in some sort of chase sequence, it’s high energy and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Sound effects are also well done, drawing your attention whenever something noteworthy happens.
Animations and art work are superb as we expect from Play’n GO. Symbols spring to life on winning spins and reels spin effortlessly.
Low-paying symbols are represented with the usual playing card icons, expect to see Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds appear quite often during your time with the game.
Higher-paying icons are represented by the merchandise, four different kinds of pots and the owner of the store under siege all indicate high-paying icons.
There is a Scatter symbol present in the game that is represented by a golden bull. Land three of these during a single spin and you’ll be awarded with 10 bonus spins.
There are multiple different Wilds in the game. The standard Wild is represented by a broken piece of china with the word ‘WILD’ written across it. This will substitute for any other common icon in the game. The other Wild present in this title is the Bull itself, which we’ll go into a little bit later.
Betting Options & Features
Bull In A China Shop is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot game developed by Play’n GO with a total of 20 fixed paylines and a RTP of 96.20%.
As we mentioned a bit earlier there are multiple Wilds that can appear in this title. Landing the Bull Wild will trigger one of three random effects, those effects being:
- The Happy Bull: This bull creates between 2 – 6 Wilds on the grid.
- The Proud Bull: Should this bull appear it will create 1 – 5 stacked Wilds.
- The Angry Bull: Finally, should this bull make an appearance it will create between 2 – 6 x2 multiplier Wilds.
Watch out for the bulls rampaging in this fun title from Play’n GO!
